I finally got around to trying this, and while it didn't work as 
suggested, it did show me how to do it. Here's the working solution, 
which I will add to the Cookbook as soon as I get a chance:

$FmtWikiLink = 'MyFmtWikiLink';
function MyFmtWikiLink($pat,$ref,$btext,$out=NULL,$pname=NULL) {
   $pg = FmtWikiLink($pat,$ref,$btext,'PageName',$pname);
   if (!PageExists($pg))
       $t = preg_replace("/^.*\\./",'',$pg);
       if (PageExists("$t.$t"))
		  $ref = "$t/$t";
   return FmtWikiLink($pat,$ref,$btext,$out,$pname);

Put this in your local.php, and "WikiWord" will automatically link to 
"WikiWord/WikiWord" if that page exists. Can easily be changed to go to 
"WikiWord/HomePage" too. Very handy if you have a lot of groups like I do.

Thanks for the help, John.
